|Clematis integrifolia ex Kazakhstan|
|Clematis integrifolia 'Mongolian Bells' (white form)|
Most of the little clematis are done, but this hybrid is still blooming in the Rock Alpine Garden...believed to be C. fremontii x scottii. Sounds good to me.
|Delosperma 'Alan Tower'|
There are still peonies blazing in this garden and that.
Here's a snail's eye view of Lilium martagon 'Album' in Woodland Mosaic.
|Lonicera floribunda 'Kintzley's Ghost'|
Iris versicolor in peak bloom...
A fine specimen of Horminum pyreneicum in the Rock Alpine Garden.
The Rock Alpine Garden is a mass of color from one end to the other. I could have spent a day there. Come to think of it, I spent decades here.
A fine dwarf Yucca harrimaniae.
I was thrilled to see a peachy seedling.
Hemerocallis graminea from Mongolia, Collected by Vojtech Holubec some 30 years ago: so excited that he'll be here in September!
|Euphorbia seguiriana v. niciceana|
The Dryland Mesa has a great stand of Oenothera (Calylophus)
No buds yet on the giant clump of Opuntia engelmannii: what gives? I suppose it will be late this year?
|Diascia integerrima 'Coral Canyon'|
|The "Nexus berm"|
I took this two nights ago, but as I look out my window tonight, the sunset looks pretty much the same.
Time in the garden feels eternal when you're there, but when you leave you see the decades have slipped past! I warn you next week the foxtail lilies will be in peak bloom, and Denver Botanic Gardens will be one vast artist's canvas. Don't say I didn't warn you! I'd stick to Facebook, Twitter and Instagram--they're far less time consuming!
